Jane working in the front desk is very kind and helpful. I will consider to return in next visit.
Room in the street side is too noisy.
It's tough to find low-cost, safe, comfortable hotels around Union Square. The Touchstone surprised me. The room was clean, reasonably comfortable, and very convenient.
Shower was a little flaky, and the bright lights and noise made it tough to sleep.
Great staff Felt comfortable staying here Fabulous location Great value
Very tiny lobby Rooms and hallways showing age Scuff marks on walls, old carpets One sheet on top of mattress - need a mattress cover.
Good location friendly staff, free water bottles.
Noisy radiator No Bar fridge, but then they never claimed to have one
The hotel staff was a delight! Considering the lobby is in a hallway it was fun interacting with joyful people.
Staff were very pleasant and helpful.
Pretty noisy at night. Wear the provided earplugs before you go to sleep. Need coffee maker
Location, less than 5mins walk from union sq. Friendly and helpful female staffs (one male staff is not very helpful), restaurants around the hotel
Close to Tenderlion, there were some homeless around, but they did not bother me. Noise when accom face the Geary street, even rm is 5th floor. Some rms have fire escape next to windows
The hotel staff was very kind and helpful in any questions, request that we had. Excellent location. Room was very clean. Excellent value for the money paid. WiFi was pretty good, as we could Skype without any problems, at all times. Restaurant "David's" have good choice of regular breakfast variations, which are discounted 20% for the hotel guests.
It's pretty noisy during the night, but effort of the hotel staff to minimise discomfort can be seen as ear plugs are provided in room.
Located in the heart of San Fran's best shopping district, the Touchstone Hotel is small but stylish with super friendly reception staff and perfect adjoining rooms for families. David's deli next door is perfect for breakfast and great cakes and you can pull up out front to load or unload luggage but there's no parking. Not a huge variety of restaurants but a good cheap Thai cafe Chabaa and Japanese cafe a few doors up ( which had a line up still at 9.30pm!). The lift is tiny but stairs a good option for fitness and overall! a great affordable choice
The location was great, the staff was kind and welcoming. Great place for few price. You can find food, transport and awesome views just around the corner.
For me everything was cool.
Central to transport Close to Union Square Plenty of places to eat including David's Staff Clean property even though quite old
Bed not extremely comfortable but, only were at hotel to sleep, we were there to sightsee
Jane the receptionist...she was wonderful
I liked absolutely nothing about this establishment.
The hotel was over priced. It was not worth the $231.00 Charging guest $15.00 for visitors when they don't even provide a lobby for friends to sit in and wait. The beds were twin size. No married couple wants to sleep in separate beds during NYE. The noise level was horrific (sexual moans and screams) especially since it was coming from the room next door. The service was of poor quality it truly was not worth the money. I would never stay there again and I don't recommend anyone to do otherwise, unless you enjoy throwing your money away in a facility where they don't offer any amenities for what they charge for.
Fantastic location. Good basic hotel. Lovely staff. Great price. I shall return.
Many black marks on one of the walls under the window.One of the lamp shades by the bed had a large brown stain. It needed a detailed cleaning-the large bathroom fan was caked with a thick gray layer of dust. It looked like gray snow. The restroom lamp shades were very dusted and there was hair on the wall above the restroom sink. The pillows only one each were very flat and the metal window shade was bent in spots. Not a $200 room I don't care what time a year
Ideally located for newcomers to San Francisco. Fantastic service with very friendly and helpful staff. We were made to feel at home and were provided with lots of information on what to see and do. Although small the rooms were very clean and comfortable. I have already recommended this hotel to friend who are considering a trip to San Francisco.
The room was small for three adults with three large suitcases and even though we were on the fifth floor there was considerable street noise during the evening.
Location, staff, clean
Heat was not on in early evening; it was a little cool to have no heat.
Perfect location, close to everything. Great service. Unique propery, highly recommended.
Location is perfect.
Quite expensive. Can be a little noisy at night.
Nice little hotel with perfect location. Small rooms but had all necessary amenities. Deli in connection to the hotel served a nice breakfast.
Very noisy from the street, as expected with the central location. A plus for the earplugs provided on the bedside table!
Is so well located
It was smelly, And the barhroom old and with Black spots....
Staff were very friendly and helpful. Answered miscellaneous questions such as places to go and best way of getting there. Location was fantastic, being very close to Macy's. Room and bathroom were clean.
Windows and walls did nothing to dampen the noise of traffic outside. Bathroom lacked an exhaust fan. Corridors could be nicer looking. Having said that, none of the above is a deal breaker. Just a nice to have.
Close to everything.
Noise was high but earplugs were provided.
My privacy in the single room and the quietude in neighbour rooms are very memorable.
The shower room is too small but fair value for the expense.
